What you need to know about crown reduction from Take A Bough

When our London tree surgeons perform a tree crown reduction they ensure that all the branches are cut back to a suitable length and back to a suitable growth point.  The entire crown is thereby reduced in size and volume through careful tree cutting, but we maintain a pleasing shape in line with a natural profile for the species of tree being worked on.

How much should be removed during a tree crown reduction?

A local tree surgeon may recommend a 30% reduction, but this is only a guideline, as the tree dictates how much can be removed based on available growth points.  Also, it is important to understand that the crown of the tree refers to the branch work.  A 30% crown reduction will not reduce the overall height of the tree by 30%.

Customer review for our crown reduction service

Wondering whether our tree services are right for you? Below are quotes from some of our 5-star Google reviews Take A Bough have received for our crown reduction service:

After an initial consultation. Toby and team came back to cut back 2 trees in my garden, as promised. They were tidy, efficient and left my garden looking beautiful. They had to walk through the house to gain access to my garden and left my home spotless. I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again. (Google review by Jules)

Truly great and friendly service. Toby came round to check and advise on our pine tree and then returned to trim the crown. Highly recommended. (Google review by Dmitry)

Toby and the team did a terrific job in sensitively reducing our silver birch and large pyracantha shrub. They discussed everything with us, worked really efficiently in a confined area and carefully cleared up afterwards. Highly recommended. (Google review by Phil M)

We take great pride in offering the best local tree services around, and these are just some of the many hugely positive reviews we receive from our clients.
